gregoletto prize draw

basilico works tirelessly to find artisan producers with a passion for quality and local tradition and a spirit of enquiry and innovation.

one of these is Giovanni Gregoletto, the producer of our outstanding DOCG Prosecco from the hillside vineyards of Valdobiaddine/Conegliano north of Treviso.

in our latest prize draw we are showcasing his work with mixed six bottle cases featuring two bottles of the prosecco and four other delights from the Gregoletto stable.

Marzemino, once highly prized by the dukes and nobility of Lombardy and the Veneto, has largely vanished from modern vineyards. Giovanni has preserved a small area of these vines and makes a delicious ‘passito’ dessert red; which goes equally perfectly with a quattro formaggi pizza or a chocolate based dessert. a proportion of the grapes are dried on rush mats to deliver a greater concentration of flavour. we are presenting the delicious ‘Burladore’ from 2010.

Verdiso is another grape which has almost vanished as producers have increasingly prized reliability and yield ahead of aroma and finesse. this too has been preserved in the Gregoletto vineyards at Premaor and produces a delightfully elegant wine; perfect at 11.5% as an aperitivo or with vegetarian pizzas. we are offering the 2013 Colli Trevigiani.

more surprising still is that Giovanni has realised a long held ambition to add brewing to the family’s viticultural finesse. his well equipped micro brewery in the valley of the Soligo river now produces artisanal beers, using only the highest quality four raw materials required for pure beers ie malted barley, hops, yeast and water. the Follina Brewery takes its name from the spring fed, shortest river in Italy; which flows into the Soligo a short distance above the brewery it once powered the silk mills of Follina, established when the Italians first broke the monopoly of the East India Company.

two beers are also on offer, each in 75cl bottles, for sharing over food. the blonde Sanavalle, perfectly balanced at 6% alcohol, and a remarkable double malt beer called Giana with real complexity of flavour. both go very well with pizza.
